NY Improves Extension Request Process for Annual Financial Reporting
- By -
New York has improved the process for requesting an extension to file charity registration annual financial reports. Now an organization can request either a 90 day extension or a 180 day extension, instead of two separate 90 day requests. Requests must be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Extension requests must contain the term of the extension, name of the organization, their NY Charities Bureau Registration #, and EIN # in the subject line. Information straight from the New York Attorney General’s website, http://www.charitiesnys.com/charities_new.jsp
- For a 90 day extension the subject line should read: Re: 90, ABC Charity, 01‐23‐45, 12‐3456789
- For a 180 day extension the subject line should read: Re: 180, ABC Charity, 01‐23‐45, 12‐3456789
When completing the New York Annual Financial Report (CHAR 500) pay close attention to the instructions as it can be a bit confusing.
